At the time when Tron was created, the cryptocurrency received lots of criticism. Initially, many thought the project would be a failure and won’t last that long. Most crypto enthusiasts also believe that Tron would vanish under impracticable codes.

It doesn’t end there. When Tron unveiled its interest to take responsibility for creating a decentralized Web – which is the primary goal of Tron, it really wasn’t easy for Justin Sun and his team as they were criticized as a blockchain without no product. But were these critics correct?

Tron has answered all its critics

It was discovered that Tron had plagiarized its Whitepaper from Ethereum, people began to label Tron as a failure. Nonetheless, Tron has been very lucky in the crypto sphere.

Its Initial Coin Offering was held in September 2017 and it came at the time when cryptocurrency was beginning to gain fame, thus, offering the crypto sphere more than $500 billion by the end of the year. At that time, Tron – the cryptocurrency initially labeled as a failure, recorded a meteoritic sale of $70 million.

After releasing its press release, Tron increased from $0.04 to $0.3 in just a few weeks. Since then, it has attracted a lot of investors in the crypto market today, and even now, it is still doing a relatively good job (considering the bloodbath that crypto market has been seeing from time to time this year so far).

We do know that it is a normal phenomenon for a digital asset to undergo hefty disapprovals on the part of its community; one can clearly see that with Cardano (ADA) and Ripple (XRP). It was said that Cardano was bought by some people with no future promises of realistic profits (which is wrong). Ripple, on the other hand, received lots of critics on the number of FinTech companies that have really adopted its products.

Even though critics and misinformation have given tough time to Tron, the blockchain firm’s answers have proved to be worthwhile. Talking about some of its most recent successes, the cryptocurrency acquired BitTorrent, and it is also working on new projects such as the Project Atlas.

Tron’s MainNet and its Virtual Machine

Tron’s MainNet was created to gain independence from Ethereum and for developers to get the avenue to develop Dapps (Decentralized Applications) on Tron’s network. The MainNet was launched on May 31s this year. As GlobalCoinReport reported at that time, Tron’s MainNet didn’t bring a surge to its price, which may be because the publicity around it was over.

During that period, it seemed Tron needed to work more to attain investors’ prospects.  Also, Tron’s Virtual Machine was launched recently, but it still hasn’t surge its price (credit goes to the whole crypto market’s dip).

At the moment, Tron’s investors are discarding the misinformation and inadequacies, but looking at its long-term visions.

Tron’s surge and dips

The long-term prospects haven’t evidenced its value yet. At the time of writing, Tron is priced at $0.01752 and ranked No.13 according to CoinMarketCap. Not too long ago, Tron was labeled as one of the ‘most used’ cryptocurrencies on 200+ online stores according to Bitcoin Superstore.

Consequently, the crypto has received lots of attention lately – even though it allegedly erred by plagiarizing its ICO. Not to forget, Tron’s Reddit community has more than 65,000 users currently. With all that in mind, Tron is set to recover soon, all we need do is to wait and see what will occur before the year closes. If the market recovers well, the coin might follow suit efficiently, but it won’t surge alone as it can’t as of now at least.

In their search for the next great investment opportunity, people often tend to run into Basic Attention Token (BAT). A lot of investors have developed a significant interest in the coin, and are wondering if things are truly as good as they seem.

With so many scams and fake coins out there, as well as bad investments that seem good at first, it is a good idea to be skeptical. However, in the case of BAT, many agree that the coin is an excellent investment that should not be missed or overlooked. So, today, we will discuss why this is, and why you should add BAT to your investment portfolio.

1. The project’s goal

BAT has a goal to solve a problem that all of us are already very familiar with, and that is the issue of online ads. For a lot of people, ads are annoying, often irrelevant, and they tend to pop up in all the wrong moments. No to mention that they are intrusive, advertisers steal or buy your private data in order to process it and target you with more appropriate ads, and more.

Most people choose to deal with this by installing ad block extensions. However, what if there is a better way to go around it?

This is where BAT comes in. The project uses its technology to solve this problem by blocking ads unless users decide to interact with them by…

How and when Electroneum (ETN) mass adoption will catch fire

Electroneum

Before we talk about how Electroneum is thriving towards mass adoption, let’s take on some basics. What is the meaning of “mass adoption” and what cryptocurrencies could really achieve it? The answer to these two questions will ultimately determine the destiny of the cryptoverse.

Sooner or later some tokens will become useful (and used by) a lot of people in the real world. That will create demand for those tokens and that demand will bring its value up. It will be the point at which the crypto market becomes mature, one that answers to real economic forces (such as supply and demand) instead of being a toy for speculators as it still is today.

So let’s start at the beginning. Mass adoption means that, given any kind of technology, product or commodity, at least seven out of ten people know what it and what they can do with it. This definition doesn’t take into account if they actually use it, only if they know about it. Think about Facebook, for instance. Not everybody you know has an active account there.

But chances are almost everybody you know understands what it is and that they could start using it anytime they wanted (if they’re not using it already) at a rate higher than 70%. Maybe a more explicit example is coffee. The percentage of coffee drinkers in the US is about 83% which is enough to ensure it’s mass-adopted. And everybody…

Stellar

Stellar Lumens is a blockchain project that includes the XLM token. It’s meant to connect banks, payments, and people. How? By making money transfers around the world quicker, safer, more efficient, available to people that are usually outside the banking system at a cost so low that it’s almost free.

Millions of people are using Stellar already. It’s considered to be the closest project to Ripple (hence, its main competitor). But Stellar has found more use cases than Ripple so far and a strategic alliance with IBM. Those two things will end up determining Stellar’s success in the long run.

Stellar’s leadership, staff, and the team have raised a few doubts in the past. This project was founded by Jed McCaleb who also founded Ripple and eDonkey. The network’s governance and centralization could improve regarding transparency as well.

That being said, Stellar’s adoption and development have grown exponentially in a short time. It’s become one of the leaders regarding blockchain structure. And it’s been in the crypto verse’s spotlight for several reasons.

With all those successes, Stellar Lumens could do a better job when it comes to decentralized apps. In third-generation blockchain projects, smart contracts and dApps are crucial. This could allow competitors like Tron, Ripple or EOS to gain advantages over Stellar.

But Stellar’s versatility is such that it might disrupt many different markets. As a payment tool, it can affect the virtual (and the real-world)…
